This dataset contains forecasts of future population growth. BC Stats applies the Component/Cohort-Survival method to project the population. This method "grows" the population from the latest base year estimate by forecasting births, deaths and migration by age. These forecasts are based on past trends modified to account for possible future changes and, consequently, should be viewed as only one possible scenario of future population.B.C. level projections are usually updated in January or February each year, with sub-provincial projections following a few months after. All population estimates and projections are as of July 1st.

Comments: A population projection is a forecast of future population growth. BC Stats applies the Component/Cohort-Survival method to project the population. This method "grows" the population from the latest base year estimate by forecasting births, deaths and migration by age. These forecasts are based on past trends modified to account for possible future changes and, consequently, should be viewed as only one possible scenario of future population.B.C. level projections are usually updated in January or February each year, with sub-provincial projections following a few months after.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
CENSUS_YEAR NUMBER 4 CENSUS_YEAR: is the census year to which the CENSUS_SUBDIVISION_ID pertains. e.g., 2006, 2011. This field combining with CENSUS_DIVISION_ID and PROJECTION_YEAR is the primary key of ECON_POPULATION_PRJCTNS_TBL table.
CENSUS_DIVISION_ID VARCHAR2 7 CENSUS_DIVISION_ID: is a foreign Key to link to CENSUS_DIVISION_ID in CEN_CENSUS_DIVISIONS_SP, e.g., 5901. This field combining with CENSUS_YEAR and PROJECTION_YEAR is the primary key of ECON_POPULATION_PRJCTNS_TBL table.
PROJECTION_YEAR NUMBER 4 PROJECTION_YEAR: Year to which the projection population value applies, e.g., 2018. This field combining with CENSUS_YEAR and CENSUS_DIVISION_ID is the primary key of ECON_POPULATION_PRJCTNS_TBL table.
